How to Install Sloped Ceiling Bracket. Don’t pay a handyman to do this simple job—learn how to become handy yourself! You will need A clothing rod A clothing rod holder A pencil A drill and bits Wall anchors Screws and leveler (optional).
Identify what kind of wall will hold the rod—drywall, masonry, or concrete.
Figure out where you want to hang the rod, and mark the points with a pencil. Have someone hold the clothing rod in different locations to determine the ideal place to install it.
Take one of the two clothing rod holders that come with the rod and center it on the mark you made on the wall. Some rods come with the ends built-in already.
With your pencil, mark the position of the screw holes where your rod holders or ends will go. Make sure your clothing rod holder is aligned correctly. There’s usually an opening on one side of the clothing rod holder that needs to point upward.
Drill pilot holes into the marks you made that correspond with the screw holes. These holes should be slightly larger than the screws you will use.
Insert the wall anchors into the holes.
Use the screws to attach the clothing rod holder to the wall.
Hold the rod up to the first holder you’ve attached and mark the location where the screws on the other end will go. Use a leveler to make sure the clothing rod will be straight.
Drill holes, install anchors, and attach the second clothing rod holder to the opposite wall.
Install the clothing rod into the holders. It should slip neatly into the holders from above. Did you know The closet in Mariah Carey’s Manhattan penthouse is 3,000 square feet!
